Manus centre police raid was brutal - refugee

From Morning Report, 7:22 am on 24 November 2017

Papua New Guinea police swooped on the Manus Island detention centre yesterday to begin removing refugees to other facilities on the island. Fifty-six refugees were taken away and refugees are disputing police claims they went willingly. About 400 men have been refusing to leave the Australian detention centre since it closed at the end of October. Video shot by one of the refugees shows police trashed the centre during the raid. Don Wiseman from RNZ Pacific spoke to Sudanese refugee Abdul Aziz Adam who is still in the centre.
